RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Trinity Taylor is no stranger to plastic surgery. In fact, when the Orlando, FL-based queen competed on Season 9 of the hit VH1 reality series, she openly admitted to giving her backside a boost with the help of a doctor. “Trinity does not pad,” she boasted. “I love plastic surgery, and I went from a pancake to a Kardashian.”
More than six months after Trinity placed in the top four on RPDR, the 33-year-old has gone under the knife yet again. In an exclusive interview with Life & Style, the Southern spitfire reveals why she turned to renowned plastic surgeon Michael Salzhauer, aka “Dr. Miami,” to get her ears pinned back and a nose job.
“This surgery is something I have wanted for a very long time!” Trinity, who had her latest procedures done earlier this week, enthuses. “I feel like it will put to rest a few of my insecurities and I will have more confidence in myself!”
According to Dr. Miami, the surgeries “went great!” — but Trinity might have to hold off on giving her face a runway-worthy beat until she heals. “She had a rhinoplasty (nose job) and otoplasty (ear pinning). I slimmed down her nasal tip, narrowed the nasal bones and reduced the overall projection of the nose,” he tells Life & Style. “The upper part of the ears were made less prominent.”
The doctor, whose other celebrity clients include Teen Mom stars Farrah Abraham and Kailyn Lowry, adds, “Now Trinity needs to rest, heal up and wait for the swelling to go down. I would wait 10 days before applying makeup.”
As fans are well aware, Trinity isn’t just known for her penchant for plastic surgery. In the drag world, the Alabama native is famous for her impeccable tuck — a “very important” part of her aesthetic. With her dedication to fishy realness (and her brand new look!), Trinity is unstoppable. “I’m definitely serious about my craft,” she says, “and serious about my career.”
RuPaul’s Drag Race returns to VH1 for Season 3 of All Stars on Thursday, Jan. 25, at 8 p.m. EST.
